Cabin: Balcony

We chose this cruise to get out of the harsh winter weather here in southern Indiana. This is the first cruise we have been on since Covid has hit. We were afraid of what could happen but we’re pleasantly surprised at how well Princess cleaned the ship and made us safe. Ship actually holds 3000+ passengers however we only had 1074 on board. We pretty much had the run of the ship. Our stop in Cartagena was canceled because of Covid there. We were pleasantly surprised with an additional stop then on Princesses private island. They did not offer the food service on the island this time. Instead they gave us a box lunch to take over. Anyone who is tired of being confined should take a Princess cruise. My husband is a smoker. There are only two places to smoke on this big ship. Outside on deck 17 aft there is a place to stand only. It would be nice if this was changed so that there would be chairs to sit in. The other place is forward on deck 16 near a bar. There are chairs and tables available at this spot.
